If the natural order is that we follow elders, then how do we follow someone we intuitively know isn't equipped to lead? How do we respond to an unnatural order where we have no choice but to become our own elders? If this is the only option available right now, then so be it. Those of us will step in, if we have to.
This is a call out to the people who can trust themselves enough to live in leadership to do so. Lead, please. We will follow, and with respect.
